Are you worried about your ageing memory?

As we age, it is normal for our memory and other brain functions to decline. There is little point in living to 100 if our brain is not functioning properly. Throughout our lives new brain cells are being created in a process called neurogenesis (neuro means nerve and genesis means birth). Even in people with Alzheimer’s new brain cells are being created. However we need to have these brain cells functioning at full capacity; hence the importance of exercise and diet. Next we need to engage these new cells so these new brain cells begin communicating with each other, rejuvenating our brain’s abilities.
